This meeting was an epic four and a half hours! The first 45 minutes was the City Treasurers report (very disappointing). That was followed by 2 hours and 20 minutes of public comment on the Riverwalk project. The actual meeting was 39 minutes, and it was followed by 40 minutes more of public comment.
Every minute of this meeting was important and interesting. The Treasurers report was very disturbing to me. The Treasurer, his staff, and the Business Administrator spent the majority of the 45 minutes explaining why their performance was the way it is. There wasn't any talk that I can recall about improving performance.
The Riverwalk fight was as heated as it has ever been. It culminated in a borderline fist fight (shouting match) between a councilman and an anti-Riverwalk activist at the 5th floor elevators. Council voted 4 to 1 in favor of the Riverwalk project.
For your convenience (and at great inconvenience to me) I have divided the meeting into segments:

1st comments segment (2 hours 22 minutes 16.2Mb)
